2-Acre Public Open Space Parcel on Clough Donated to Township

A 2.2-acre hillside parcel comprised of mature woods and a stream is the newest donation to Anderson’s portfolio of open space. 

Donated by Shan and Amar Bhati, the property is on the southwest corner of the Clough and Wolfangel intersection, across from the new Clough Chase subdivision. 

“We are hoping the township’s protection of this property will help preserve the mature woods along more than 700 feet of Clough Pike, and reduce any erosion or issues along the tributary to Clough Creek that runs through a portion of the site,” said Assistant Administrator for Operations Steve Sievers. 

“We appreciate private property owners like the Bhatis who continue to work with Anderson Township to leave a lasting legacy of open space for the benefit of the community,” said Trustee Andrew Pappas. “If you add up all the township Greenspace and open space, plus township and county parks, our community has one of the highest protected areas per capita that I know of.”
